Functional

I'm pretty depressed today so I'm going to keep it short. 

I slept in until about 9, I did my God Time and took a shower.  I did a load of laundry. 

Ever since my washer broke I am scared to run it, scared to hear it run.  I always worry something catastrophic will happen.  I learned my lesson, I won't run it during my God Time, I was very tense. 

I got everything in the dryer (except the stuff that can't be dried) and got that going. 

I forgot to get the full sized snickers bars for Halloween, the last time we went to Sam's Club, so I had to call Chuck and go today.  It was insane, very busy and chaotic. 

I listened to the woman in front of me tell her friend how she lost her job for "accidentally" hitting a student.  She was really upset she got fired for it, but, dude, she hit a student.  Accident or not no parent is going to stand for that. 

This is how things work in America.  I'm not saying it's right, or wrong - some kids need some physical discipline, in my opinion, but you don't want that kind of power in the wrong hands, either.  And I have met a lot of very strange teachers. 

I finally checked out and headed home.  I told Ron I was taking a nap, and he proceeded to make ongoing noise for the next 2 hours.  I finally gave up when #6's kids came home from school and started playing outside my bedroom. 

I got up and started bagging the candy.  I did up about half of it.  I had a talk with Ron about "waking Heather up" during her nap and he was apologetic. I liked that he asked for specific examples of what he had done so he wouldn't do it again. 

I didn't eat much, just some peanut butter and yogurt.  I didn't have the energy to fix anything. 

Ron heated up something out of the fridge, which is what we normally do. 

All in all it wasn't a bad day considering I was depressed.  At least I was functional.
